Doug: I really wrestled with this tray position business. Actually, I wrestled with the whole top position idea, because it was so exacting with Moe. Every time it was exactly in the right place. I didn't think that repetitive hitting of balls would groove something that exactly.

I am a big believer in cause and effect, and that the tray and elbow was effect. I was convinced that Moe was a pusher because of all the effects on the body. His body routine is not puller territory at all. (Many others disagree with this position, including NGCIs).

I knew that the position of the right elbow was pertinent to the swing, and I thought perhaps that was a causal move, but it isn't. The grip is the primary causal move for causing most of the effects.

Further, in this regard, once you figure this out, you will understand Jack K's emphasis on forearm rotation for the power, and that, also, is caused by the grip.

If you exaggerate the grip, for the backswing, (put the right hand way under, with the right thumb on the right side of the grip)you will understand about the tray (it just goes there), and you will understand how the right elbow wants to go in front of the hip on the downswing, because there is pressure for it to move in that direction, caused by the grip. The exaggerated grip won't work on the downswing so move the grip just a little left, a little less strong, and you will see the tremendous rotation of the right forearm into impact...just happens.

Key to the whole thing is to ensure that the clubhead is several inches behind the ball, when you grip the right hand.

Anybody reading this remember that this is a golf DG, I am not NGCI, just a hacker like you, and that these ideas are in conflict with the way that NG teaches the system. However, I think I am right.
